Writing Veronica’s Story

Veronica's story, Something New- props n poses

Veronica’s Story is the name of the pose prop from Something New- props n poses, that is the focus of the first photo. A comfy chair, with a good book to read, plate of cookies nearby.. well who could resist having one, not me that’s for sure. Soft rugs on the floor and a cute little cat for company, yes all that comes together to make up the pose, awesome right!

Even though the prop shows reading the book , I decided to title my post ‘Writing Veronica’s story’ because well, that’s what I am doing writing my blog ūüôā Now that that mystery is explained I want to show you and tell you a bit more about this fantastic outfit I am wearing. Both the skirt and top are from Pish Posh, and as per usual include huds for different patterns/ colors. You can wear the sheer top without the bra underneath but as these pictures need to stay ” safe” for Facebook I decided to opt for a scarlet color to highlight the flowers on this pattern.

!gO Breathe in the fresh air

!gO Breathe in the fresh air

Recently I grabbed a few moments at a blogger preview for the upcoming round of Shiny Shabby, lots to see and lots to buy even though some designers were still setting up. I took a moment to play the gacha machine for !gO, hoping to pick up one of the petticoats which look super sweet. Instead I got a top, a tunic and then BOTH the rares, which is the full outfit of – petticoat underskirt, apron, bag, necklace. I added a few more gacha items, a pair of boots from Breathe and a floral headpiece from Lode – from memory both of these items were available at Chapter 4 .

Of Myth and Majesty – Part 2

Danity gown, Gold, Azul

Let me tell you a tale of myth and majesty from days of old

when maidens rose to reign over kingdoms and countries

by not doing what they were told.

A rather cheeky second ‘stanza’ to my little rhyme, but I felt it fit, for the glorious color of this gown is neither meek nor mild but a strong bold color befitting royalty. The second gown¬† for this mini series of posts about¬† Azul is called Danity, and isthe Formal Gown worn by Danity Mynx at the MVW 2017 Finals. This mesh gown¬† with add-on flexi details is available in 16 colors ranging from white , soft pastel shades, bright jewel tones through to black.

I decided to shoot these photos at another area of the Once Upon a Fairy Tale sim, so followed the signs to the Elven Tower, a magnificent series of balconies that oversee this gorgeous location. However I didn’t make it into the tower proper and decided to take my photos in the garden at the base of the tower. If you are looking for a beautiful location for photos I highly recommend this, each ” area” is signposted and is close together, yet is so well developed that they ” feel” very separate whilst still flowing from one to the other.

I wanted to wear a crown with this look and found the perfect one in the Asharah Elite crown , from Zuri Jewelry. From a touch menu you are able to select from a range of choices for the metal part of the crown as well as the small pearls and three different areas of gems. Giving you an endless array of possibilities- hooray for Elites from Zuri Jewelry!

Of Myth and Majesty – Part1

Myth gown, pearl, Azul

Let me tell you a tale of myth and majesty from days of old

  when warriors fought dragons for treasures

 a wealth of rubies, sapphires , diamonds and gold.

Azul is a veritable treasure trove when it comes to finding gorgeous gowns and dresses, and two newly released gowns are the features of this two part blog series. First up we have Myth, a daring gown with a detailed bodice topping a thigh high splitted skirt . Included with the gown are shoulder pauldrons , armguards and a beautiful golden wreath. Myth is the National Costume made for the winner of MVW 2017, Joys Cuttita and is available in 16 different color options.

 

 

Avril hair, EMO-tions

I chose an earlier released hairstyle from EMO-tions which features the same laced detailing as the bodice, you should be able to find this at the mainstore now. The location for my photos is The Dragon’s Keep area of Once Upon A Fairy Tale

If I could turn back time

My Dance , Something New- props n poses

If I could turn back time I would spend more time dancing and less time caring about who was watching me dance. The bright fun designs on the Sn@tch high heeled sneakers and the classic design of the Pepper running shorts from Pish Posh inspired this post today. Both are items with huds, the shoes enable you to pick from several dark colors or patterns that pop in contrast with the black detailing on heel and toe. The shorts have two huds one for colors with contrast piping , while the other has patterns, both of these huds have the option to tint through use of a color palette. The pose used in the top photo is called My Dance and is part of a pose set from Something New- props n poses, this isn’t a new release but you will still find it in store.

Before I encourage you to drop down to the details I want to point out the fun stockings I am wearing, I was originally looking for some long socks but when I saw these pink fishnets with ‘pretty’ skull detail I thought it added a slight twist to my outfit while still being ‘girly’ .

Standing still but going far

Raku outfit, Sn@tch

This week’s new releases at Sn@tch included a wonderful mixed mesh outfit which is sexy, sassy and all kinds of fun. Black mesh high waisted jeans with a silvery sheen, including a variety of mesh body fits -Maitreya, Belleza (3), Slink (2), hug your legs lovingly and stop just shy of your belly button to give a teasing flash of flesh when paired with the included top. The top can be worn on a standard sl body or a mesh body ( via omega hud) and the range of colors include bright tones and a slightly muted version of each color giving you an awesome 16 colors on the hud . A mesh collar add on gives you the finishing touch to this halter neck and another hud ensures you can match it to the color of your choice.

Among the other releases were two gorgeous hairstyles, I chose to wear Jordy as I love the soft flowing look of the hair tumbling around the face. This soft auburn tone from the Naturals hud is the perfect color to set off the freckles on my skin. For all details keep scrolling .

The way to a Siren’s heart

The call of the Siren

I spy you, the siren on the rocks, sweetly urging
I knew then that must be the course to take,
to the song so sweet, to the face so fair, lovely
I set sail the way of your voice and your beauty

from Sirens Call Рby Nicky McNeil source :  http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/sirens-call/

Siren gown, Poet's Heart @ TSA

The Siren in this post is the aptly named gown from Poet’s Heart, the fit , the fabric choice, the delicate color blending.. not to mention the fact you can choose between opaque and sheer versions – why resist?!¬† The dress is available in 6 iridescent colors , or the wonderful fatpack, as I mentioned you can choose between the opaque/ sheer versions¬† via hud, and each dress includes sizes for Slink Physique/ Hourglass and Maitreya ( experimental- which fit¬† perfectly). You will find this Siren at the current round of The Secret Affair and that’s where you can also pick up the Mermaid gown poses I am using for these photos.

Lumae skin and hair by EMO-tions

To continue the mermaid styling I pulled out a radiant Lumae skin which was a prize for a hunt in a past round of Enchantment. The finishing touch is this delicately beaded braided hairstyle from EMO-tions, which you can find in the usual array of color packs at the recently opened round of Cosmopolitan.

Exploring Corlevoli Cove

Janine dress , Sascha's Designs, photo taken @ Corlevoli Cove

When trying on the Janine dress from Sascha’s Designs I was drawn to all of the vibrant color combinations on the huds, but decided on this one. I added some recent gacha wins and a group gift ( check details to find out which items) and went exploring for a pretty location to reflect the light hearted fun reflected in this outfit. I landed at Corlevoli Cove¬† which felt like a small Mediterranean island resort or fishing village. The shoreline was dotted with cute little houses ( small but sweet and available to rent), and the area was landscaped beautifully.

Annik hair, EMO-tions, [session] skin + lode

I wandered around the lower area for a little while and was about to take photos when I noticed a larger building on the hill, thinking about checking out the view I walked to the top and found myself in the landowners residential area- oops. He approached me and I apologized for my trespass, and then found myself drawn to a very pleasant chat about the land and his home.

Thank you Marco for making me feel so welcome to your little island paradise. If you are looking for a small house to call your own and want water access consider this location on your list . If , like me, you are always looking for a new place for photos, keep this as an option when you want lovely coastal views or a subtle landscaped setting. However if you want to rezz anything there you will need to join the group, fee to join.

apologies I forgot to make a note of the poses ūüė¶

Oh what to wear – Work it Out

Oh what to wear, Something New - props n poses

The rather cheeky title to this post is actually a combination of the two main items I am featuring.. Oh what to wear is this fun laundry themed pose prop from Something New- props n poses. Yes it is a cheeky pose to match , especially when wearing this fantastic exercise outfit.

Working up a sweat

While Work it Out is the appropriately named two piece outfit from Pish Posh, with huds that allow you to choose between a variety of colors – bold and muted, plus some fantastic prints eg ” Good things come to those who sweat” . The huds from Pish Posh also have a color picker for tinting so you can also create a customized color, made for Mesh Bodies: Belleza All, Slink All, Maitreya, TMP. Classic: XXS, XS, S, M, L sizes. Available on Marketplace you will also find a Demo there for 0L so check it out ! https://marketplace.secondlife.com/stores/177754
